The Belgian striker is the first nerazzurro since 1950 to make 15 away teams in a Serie A season.
The Belgian international gave Nerazzurri the lead in the 34th minute by injuring Mattia Perin after a cross from Cristiano Biraghi. After Alexis Sanchez doubled for the visitors at the end of the second half, Lukaku pulled into the box to take advantage of a Marcelo Brozovic serve and make it 3-0.
Lukaku now has 15 away teams in the Italian top speed and is the first Inter player to reach the total game in 70 years and tie the record set by Stefano Nyers.
15 – Romelu #Lukaku has scored 15 goals from home during the current Serie A season, which corresponds to the record for goals for one #Inter‘players in a single top campaign (Stefano Nyers 1949/50). Fantastic.#GenoaInter pic.twitter.com/e0c0ijqCcA

Saturday’s victory extends Inter’s undefeated distance to six games and puts Lombards in second place in the table with two more games to go. Antonio Conte’s side are now four points behind leaders Juventus, who were able to win their ninth title in a row on Sunday by beating Sampdoria in Turin.
